Novel network morphologies and compositionally robust 3-colored perforated lamellar phase in A(BC)2 mikto-arm star copolymer melts

Kirkensgaard, Jacob


Dissipative particle dynamics simulations are used to investigate the self-assembly of A(BC)2 3-mikto-arm star copolymers. The simulations predict a range of structures obtained by varying the volume fractions of the 3 components. Most notably the simulations show that a 3-colored perforated lamellar phase recently identified experimentally where the C and B components perforate lamellae of A is stable over a wide range of compositions. Further, the possibility of forming two other completely...[Show more]
